British Telecom and the Co-Op Bank use psychometric tests to discover if staff would adapt to working from home. Using these examples, find out if you're a home body or an office type.

Answer Yes or No to the following statements:

1) I get tense very easily

2) I find it difficult to concentrate on one topic for very long

3) I attend a lot of social events

4) I prefer to plan well ahead

5) I react to events as they happen

6) I dislike untidy surroundings

7) I enjoy the reassurance and approval of my senior managers

Three or more "no"s indicate a homeworking personality.

Which would you prefer to do?

a) forecasting

b) school teaching

a) Crosswords, chess, reading?

b) Team sports, parties?

a) laboratory research

b) selling laboratory products

If you answer two "a"s or more, homeworking beckons; two "b"s or more, stay in the office.
